Ready is second to Dabangg

Salman Khan's 'Ready' starts on an expected high note crossing a weekend gross of Rs 40.5 crore though it remains second to 'Dabangg'.
Every new big release in Bollywood is raising the bar of the opening weekend collections.

Last year it was his rural action-drama 'Dabangg' that broke the dry spell at the box office by earning Rs.48.25 crore in the opening weekend, and this year Salman Khan's comedy 'Ready' has brought the much needed respite at the box office by grossing Rs.41 crore over the weekend.

Trade pundits, however, admit that 'Ready' is not on par with 'Dabangg' in terms of content and appeal and many not enjoy a long innings at the box office, but it is an entertaining film and got a good opening.
The weekend break up is as follows (figures in net)

Friday Rs 131.5 million (Rs 13.15 crore)

Saturday Rs 122.5 million (Rs 12.25 crore)

Sunday Rs 152.5 million (Rs 15.25 crore) highest figures across India.

'Ready' is now No.2 after 'Dabangg'. The top all time openers in Bollywood are listed below -

1) Dabangg: Rs 485 million (Rs 48.5 crore)

2) Ready: Rs 406.5 million (Rs 40.65 crore)

3) 3 Idiots: Rs 400 million (Rs 40 crore)

4) Tees Maar Khan: Rs 380 million (Rs 38 crore)

5) Golmaal 3: Rs 360 million (Rs 36 crore)
